Hello everybody, i want to talk about my daughter reanne. One day she went to school and came home with three notes the first was, from her friend kelsey. It said, reanne i asked all of the kids in our class how they think you look. These are the things they told me. you are a fatso, chubby, lardbutt, blubbergirl, piggy, and fat magnet. The next note was a list from kelsey. These were what kids 11-15 thought of the way reanne looked. these words were very hurtfull and saddening and the last note was from the school guidance counselor who gave me a list of weight programs,and diets for reanne. Now when reanne came home she screamed and hollered and cried. She told me she knew she was fat and she wanted to be thin. A couple of months later she was on a diet but she was still as fat as a house. But not literally. her thighs are huge she as tons of rolls on her stomache and she has busted out of almost every pair of clothes she owns. People make fun of her and it discourages her from the diet I put her on Please respond!

I talked to her and she is willing to have a e-mail correspondance with your daugher. My daughter used to be quite chubby and she has become much better thanks to swimming and just a better knowlege of what is good for her when eating and what isn't. She isn't on a diet at all and after a summer of swimming she already looks better. She can e-mail my daughter at email@example.com

Reply from Tara, Child's Age 29 - 08/29/02 - IP#: 216.76.186.xxx Hello, my heart goes out to you all. I have a daughter that is over weight too, but she has lost some pounds and she is still working hard to lose more. For one i have made this a family thing for her, i am eating right too along with exercising with her. I have cut out going to fast foods, eating fried foods and alot of fat period, NO SODAS. She and i eat more bake foods and i make sure that we eat dinner before 7p.m. everyday now. I must say this my daughter has a sleeping disorder and she has to sleep with a machine called a cpap to help her to breath right at night, god knows this is no happy feeling at all. God knows i am working hard to help her and she is doing great. If you would like to know some of the things i am doing to help her please feel free to email me MZ_HONEY29@YAHOO.COM. THANKS AND TAKE CARE AND I WISH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK WITH HELPING YOUR CHILD. P.S. YOU AS THE PARENT HAVE TO TRY AND WORK HARD TO HELP YOUR CHILD, STOP BUYING THE FATTY JUNK FOODS AND REPLACE THEM WITH HEALTHY SNACKS. ANOTHER TOO, WE CAN'T TELL OUR CHILD NOT TO EAT THIS OR THAT, IF WE ARE GOING TO EAT THE FOODS WE ARE TELLING THEM NOT TO EAT...THATS NOT RIGHT KIDS LEARN FROM EXAMPLES.
